While having lunch at Perkins (Vair outside), a gentleman told me about a Vair Vert for sale locally. I will be going to look at it after lunch.

I went and looked at the local Vair today. It is a Monza 900, with a 140 hp, 4 spd (if shift knob is correct). Not sure of the year, so I leave that to the people who read tags.

I want to be precise and accurate about the condition of this car. IT IS A PARTS CAR.

Rusted floorboards, doors, door hinge structure. Right door drops 3/8" when opened. I didn't note any rocker rust holes but it has sat for 3 years over dirt. Southern dirt is known for its acidity. Interior is pitiful. Needs new top and window. Engine compartment is unique and without all its seals. It does have electric fuel pump. A fuel pressure regulator and rubber hoses in the engine compartment.

140 was rebuilt by the owner but company that has the car did the machine work. They were big in race engine machining and assembly, before the owner died a couple years ago. They say the engine runs. I informed them anyone looking at seriously would want it started. I could not get the engine number as the shroud was positioned over it and the alternator mount (former generator mount) overlapped it also. OH the 140 engine has a cast crankshaft pulley. I hope he didn't run it at high RPM a lot. I wonder if the crankshaft is std nitride crankshaft or a crankshaft they found that would work?

I told him what I would give after seeing the engine run. Less than owners has asked for, which is $2000. Only looking to save engine and scrap the rest. The gentleman I spoke to is going to pass my offer to the owner. If he doesn't accept, I will let people know my offer and someone my want to offer more to get the fine car. I will then be the go between for phone numbers.
